24 Aug 2017

PCS were advised in February 2017 that HMCTS intended to launch a number of flexible operating hours’ pilots in Crown Courts, Magistrates’ Courts and the Civil and Family Courts commencing in May 2017 and lasting for approximately 6 months. Commencement of the pilots was put on hold pending the outcome of the general election. We understand that HMCTS are seeking to start pilots shortly.

Pilot locations have been identified in London (Blackfriars Crown Court, Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court and Brentford County Court) and the North East (Newcastle Crown Court, Sheffield Magistrates’ Court and Manchester Civil Justice Centre.
